We got married in May at the sister resort Nora Beach Resort and Spa and we and all our guests stayed at the Nora Buri Resort and Spa. Such a fantastic resort, the 2 pools are phenomenal with amazing views!
We stayed in a Hillside Pool Villa.. what a room, and what a view! Just stunning!!
The staff were so friendly and helpful and so good with our family and friends.
We had such a fantastic time and will definitely be back!
Thank you Nora Resorts for such a special week!!

Wedding was amazing
Were do i start, from start to finish it was amazing. We landed at 9pm to a lovely greeting. Staff where lovely and helpful. Christine, our wedding planner was fantastic, she made sure our day was perfect and it was. Even when the rain turned up, the staff worked very quickly at getting everything and everyone inside. It was a beautiful day, the ceremony was beautiful and we had our reception in The Barge, beautiful absolutely beautiful and the food (we had the bbq buffet) every guest commented how awesome it was. The staff, yes the English isnt great but they are happy, friendly and go out of there way. We had our two year old with us and every staff member we met, spoke or high fived her, whether it was reception, the cleaner or the ground/garden guys she felt so welcome and loved every minute. The pools are great, the breakky buffet awesome and the cocktails... I recommend a samui slipper by the pool bar any day. The beach is a shelly beach, nice for a stroll and to chase crabs. Its a 5 minute taxi to town or a free shuttle that leaves a few times a day. Scooter hire is pretty cheap too. Loved the Nora Buri, perfect location for a wedding and not to far from town.

There are no words to express the gratitude for the magical day created by Michelle and all the staff at Nora Buri Resort & Spa. As I have an extremely busy schedule, the task of planning a wedding was very daunting. Michelle and the team were so well organised and on top of things that I didn't have to worry or stress about anything. All I can say is you exceeded my expectations and my day was so beautiful and elegant, there was nothing that could have been done to make it more exceptional. We are truly grateful and cannot express in words how incredible you all are. Thank you Thank you Thank you

We had our wedding at Nora buri this April. We cannot thank Michelle and her amazing team enough for their efforts to make our day as special as it was. They were truely amazing such was our day. The food was great. The only disapointment was that it was over too soon

A perfect family holiday with a wedding in the middle!
From the moment we arrived at Nora Beach we knew we had chosen the best possible place for our wedding, and for our family and friend's who were visiting Thailand for the first time.
Bangkok Airways had lost our baggage and we checked in feeling tired and frustrated. The hotel staff could not do enough to ensure we knew what was happening with our luggage and when it would arrive. They reassured us and helped us to sort out the situation.
Having booked our wedding 2 years in advance we had been in touch with Christine for a while and had met her once on a previous visit to Koh Samui. We already knew she was fantastic at her job but meeting her in person, and introducing her to our friends and family exceeded the expectations we already had. She is friendly, professional, and above all else, makes you feel completely at ease about all the little questions you want to ask and things that you want to 'double-check.' It's hard to completely put your trust in someone when getting married abroad in a country with a completely different culture, but she knew exactly what to do to make our wedding perfect and to facilitate everything we asked for. Thanks to her, and the other hotel staff, we had the most amazing wedding day and wish we could do it all over again. As well as Christine we would also like to say a special thanks to the waiter who served our private bbq on the 16th April - he did an absolutely fantastic job. When checking out, one of the lovely receptionists said she hoped to see us again soon with a little girl or little boy - we said we'd be back for our 5 year anniversary so you can hold us to that!!
The resort staff are so friendly and each and everyone of them greet you with a smile and ask how you are. We have stayed in many hotels in Thailand and feel this is rare to find. The pool area is kept clean and safe and was enjoyed by many families. We stayed in a beach front villa with pool and it was AMAZING! By far the best room we have ever stayed in and can't wait to return in the future! The restaurant served a delicious range of food and was reasonably priced in comparison to other restaurants in Koh Samui. The spa was also fantastic and well worth a visit.
We want to thank Nora Beach Resort and Spa and all of their fantastic staff, for not only the best day of our lives but the best holiday too. Our family and friends, many of whom would probably not have chosen to travel to Thailand had it not been for our wedding, were amazed with the standard of the resort, the friendliness and of the staff, and the beautiful grounds and surroundings. We can't wait to return. Thank you.

Dream Wedding Location
We had our wedding here in March 2017. We checked out dozens of hotels/resorts all over Thailand to find the best one for us, and we are glad we choose Nora Buri Spa and Resort. From the first email, our wedding planner, Michelle, was a delight to deal with, and she went out of her way to ensure our wedding went exactly how we wanted it to go. It really was a dream wedding. The resort itself is very luxurious with spacious rooms overlooking the sea. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful.We had guest visiting from Ireland, Japan and Australia, and we were all treated like royalty. The food was amazing too, we had just over 30 guests with our wedding party and every single one of them raved about how it was the best wedding meal they’d ever had. Can't wait to come back and visit again some day. Thank you so much to everyone at Nora Buri who helped make our wedding day so amazing.
Keiko & David - Japan, Ireland
So glad that we chose Nora Buri for our wedding in Mar 2017. It was such a wonderful and unforgettable lifetime experience not only for the gorgeous ocean view of the venue, but also thanks to the professional and thoughtful services provided by the wedding planner(Michelle) and other staff, who have been so experienced and helpful in dealing with chaos during the planning process and on the big day. The wedding turned out to be as perfect as exactly I had dreamed about since a little girl. Our guests enjoyed their stays at Nora Buri as well and all of us would love to return in the near future. We sincerely recommend Nora to those who consider to have a beach wedding at a romantic destination such as Koh Samui.
Cicy& Eddie - Sydney, Australia
From the bottom of our hearts we would like to thank Michelle and all the team at Nora Buri for creating our perfect wedding day! With their help, planning our destination wedding was no where near as difficult as we originally thought. There was nothing they didn't think of. It was not only amazing for us, but for our guests as well. They all said it was the best wedding they had ever been to. Everyone was blown away by the beautiful ceremony and the reception atmosphere was incredible. We both have not been able to stop thinking about that day since we got home. We have made a decision that we will return to Nora Buri next year on our 1st anniversary. The resort and staff are second to none and we can not wait to go back. Thanks again
Bonnie & Ryan - Sydney, Australia
We could not have asked for an easier wedding experience. Or a better wedding day! Not only did the staff go above and beyond during our stay they did so for all of our family and friends who attended also. I would rate this resort well above five star for everything from rooms, views, pools, location, spa, food, staff friendliness and helpfulness. We have made many friends with the resort staff and will definitely be back soon. If your thinking of a couple of days away then this place is perfect for a relaxing holiday for couples or for your whole family. If it's for a wedding then from our experience you could not ask for anything more from the wedding planners Christine and Michelle who were always at our beck and call up to the wedding, after the wedding and also most importantly working a 16hour shift on the actual day to ensure everything was perfect. No words could describe apart from amazing! Thanks Nora Buri Love Tom and Gabi Lynch

Amazing wedding and accommodation!
We had our wedding at Nora Buri and it was the best day we could've asked for. The staff were extremely professional, kind and friendly. The set up was absolutely stunning! Our wedding was rather big with 100 guests and the majority stayed at this resort and thoroughly enjoyed it. We will visit again for our anniversary.
Shirley & Daniel - UK
We got married at the Nora Buri Resort on the 8th Feb 2017 and it was absolutely perfect, 5 stars does not do it justice. Michelle made every aspect of the wedding planning easy and stress free and I had 100% confidence leading up to the day in Michelle and her team. We arrived at the resort the Saturday before the wedding along with all 27 guests who were blown away by the beautiful resort and the extremely helpful staff who always went out of their way to ensure everything was perfect. The wedding day itself ran like clockwork under Michelle’s watchful eye and the attention to detail was beyond anything we had expected. We had the western wedding package and the setup of the ceremony and reception was beautiful, we choose the lawn and the barge restaurant. The food served at the reception was exceptional and every plate went back to the kitchen empty. During the reception, we had fire dancers and the band who were all chosen by the resort. We had seen many fire shows and singers while in Thailand but the acts chosen by Michelle were outstanding. When I commented to Michelle how fantastic they were she replied “we only choose the best” which is absolutely true and sums up everything about Nora Weddings. We cannot thank Michelle and her team enough for making our day so special and we would recommend Nora Weddings to everybody.

Stunning Resort with Friendly Staff
We got married here, and everything was perfect! Our wedding planner Christine was outstanding! Our guests also enjoyed staying at Nora Buri. Each staff member was professional, friendly and helpful. Nora Buri went above and beyond to add value to our already wonderful stay at Nora Buri.

Paradise and friendly
Beautiful resort.Staff went out of their way to help and were extremely friendly. Would definitely return. We went with our 4 grown children for a holiday and to renew our vows. Big thanks especially to Michelle the wedding coordinator who was amazing. The service was beautiful and far exceeded our expectations. The resort was close to Chang Mai which was awesome for shopping.
Rory & Lizette - New Zealand
Had our wedding here with 35 guests also staying
Beautiful hotel grounds, well manicured Very friendly and helpful staff that always smile Swimming pools were both fantastic, clean and modern Our wedding planner Christine was fantastic and adhered to our every whim we can't thank her enough! Views from rooms are beautiful The spa gets a 10/10 the massages were fantastic Breakfast was really good! Close to chaweng beach without being too close so that you feel you have some tranquility
Both restaurants (manora and barge) need to lift their games for a 5 star resort. On one night some of our wedding guests waited 1.5 hours just for the soup they ordered. At the barge I had to wait to even order while my friend next to me was already eating! We were quite baffled by this weird arrangement of feeding some parts of the table and making others wait ages and it was unfair especially when young kids are involved. The menu options also aren't that great especially for vegetarians although the wedding dinner was pure veg and very good. We also had a lot of electrical problems in both our rooms (we got moved from one room to the next due to initial problems but they continued in the next room). Our lights kept flickering on and off keeping us awake several nights in a row and despite workers trying their best to fix it, it just didn't seem to work. The bathrooms in the rooms are a bit tired and could do with a face lift.
Overall a nice stay. Our wedding went so well and we were really happy with it, just some things that the resort could improve on to improve other guests stay in the future :)

Wedding Dream Come True!
My husband and I decided to get married in Koh Samui however we had never travelled to the island before. All of the organizing was done through Christine Lunas (Wedding coordinator ) via email. It was a little nerve-racking not being there before and trying to imagine everything but we were blown away! We knew it was going to be beautiful but our experience was even better!. From the flowers, to the catering to the kind hospitality we received was exceeding. Christine did an amazing job we could not have been happier. Everyday there was something new to be amazed about! Nothing was ever a problem and the way our guests were treated was excellent. We highly recommended the Nora Beach for a destination wedding we would do it all over again if we could!!!! Thanks again so much Christine, It and the Nora beach team you made our wedding dream come true.

Romantic and relaxing hotel in Chaweng beach
This hotel is amazing and their staff are so friendly. I loved everything on my 7 day stay. First of all, I had my wedding there and everything was perfect and it was done just like I wanted. The Wedding organizer and her team was so talented and helped me a lot for this magical wedding to happen. I didn't have to worry about anything before my special day. Our guests flew a long way from The United States of America and the staff was so helpful and took a great care of them. Everyone was so pleased. Second, the location is so close to the airport and Chaweng walking street but it is still leaves you a private location and its quiet. Third, The hotel rooms and accommodations are very convenient and useful. My husband and I stayed in two types of rooms, it was beach front pool villa and the pool villa hillside seaview. They both had a beautiful view of the ocean and so romantic. Last but not least, I love their breakfast that have so much variety and the fruits were so delicious! The Barge restaurant has great food that you can choose as well. The last great impression was the spa. The spa is the most relaxing and comfortable that I have been to in my life! We got a wedding package, couple massage. It was AMAZING!!! We are definitely going

Take Us Back to Nora Buri!!!
WOW!!! How else could we begin to describe the experience of holding our wedding at Nora Buri Resort and Spa?
Planning an overseas wedding might seem completely daunting but from our first dealings with our wedding planner Michelle, we knew we’d made the perfect choice by holding our wedding at Nora Buri Resort. No matter how big or small a request, Michelle was always quick to respond by Skype and email, helping to put our minds at ease in the lead up to arriving in Koh Samui. Michelle led us through the entire process with absolute ease.
Upon meeting Michelle and her exceptional team, we were continually impressed at the attention to detail paid to all aspects of our wedding. From knowing exactly when all of our guests were due to arrive and depart to looking after our dresses and suits in preparation for the big day, no fine detail was missed. Even after our wedding day had come and gone Michelle’s follow up to ensure that we continued to enjoy our stay was exemplary. As for the Wedding Day itself we couldn’t have asked for any more of Nora Buri. From the extraordinary floral decorations and set up on the lawn area for our ceremony through to the wonderful reception in The Barge, this was the wedding of our dreams and it was all made possible by Michelle and her wonderful team. As for the fire show during the reception, we couldn’t recommend it highly enough!

To describe the resort itself as a slice of paradise doesn’t quite do justice to how amazing this place is. From the moment we arrived at reception and were greeted with refreshments our stay was ten nights of pure bliss and relaxation. From the luscious green surrounds of the gardens and the luxurious guest rooms to the amazing cocktails and food at the pool bar, you could get used to this lifestyle.
The helpful and courteous staff were second to none and are a credit to Nora Buri and its management team. All of our guests have not stopped raving about the resort since arriving back in Australia and we are already planning a reunion trip in the near future.
If we could do it all over again tomorrow, we wouldn’t change a thing! The impression that Nora Buri made on all of us (and all of our guests) was really that profound!!!

Amazing Indian Wedding Venue!
We had our wedding at Nora Buri Resort on 5, 6 and 7 August 2016 with 100 guests. We had a traditional Indian wedding with 5 functions in total. The functions were: a dinner at the Manora Restaurant, a haldi and prayer ceremony in the Conference Room, a beach party at the barge restaurant, elaborate groom’s procession and traditional hindu wedding at the beachfront lawn & a reception in the Conference Room.
We were nervous about how everything would pan out as my husband and I have only been to Thailand for holidays and neither of us are based there. However, Christine, the event manager at Nora Buri was a blessing to us. She was very patient and thorough when going through all our requirements for each event. She would provide her input and gave us good alternatives when roadblocks were met. The lead up to the wedding was stressful but we worked hand in hand with Christine to make it possible.
From the moment we reached, a few days prior to our wedding, the staff were well informed and aware of our upcoming wedding festivities. They were extremely kind and hospitable towards us and our guests who came over the next few days. From the moment our guests checked in, they were taken care of very well, all the way till the time they left. The hotel as a whole is beautiful and all our guests were extremely impressed with the spacious rooms and plentiful amenities provided. The resort is scenic and has 2 big pools which provide nice views too.
With regard to the events, the staff were very sincere and hardworking. Christine made it a point to personally be present at all events and oversee all arrangements. They took their own initiative and provided us with all the necessary amenities whenever needed. They were very accommodating whenever we asked for something more, even at the last minute. They included their own decoration to make our events more festive too. As a bonus to make our wedding even more memorable, Nora Buri upgraded us, the couple, to a pool villa room complimentary for our entire stay there.
Overall, Nora Buri made our wedding memorable and nothing short of amazing. Without them these memories of a lifetime would have never been realised. If you are planning a wedding, do not think twice about selecting Nora Buri. You will never regret your decision!
Amazing Wedding planner, and team, + 5 star service!
Where to begin? Our party of 40, about 25 staying at Nora Beach Resort, had an unforgettable time. All around great service throughout the whole resort, and when we had any questions we were answered with multiple options. The resort is beautiful and our beachfront villa was spectacular. Michelle, our wedding planner, and her team made our wedding day stress free and smooth. From helping arrange barber shop appts, nail salons, and even a trial for the makeup artist with my beautiful wife. Michelle was with us every step of the way, and made it very clear that anything we needed or requested would be no problem at all. The day after we enjoyed the amazing spa and our candlelight dinner with once again top notch service. Working in the service industry myself I can honestly say that this was the best experience I have ever had at a hotel. 5 star, 100% recommended, and we will be back to visit the wonderful team at Nora beach resort.
Room Tip: Beachfront Villa, your own house on the beach...with private pool!

Wedding at Nora Beach 28 June 2016
We chose Nora Beach as a place for our wedding reception back in 2015. We had viewed over 12 other hotels on the island but Michelle captured our needs and dreams within 10 minutes of meeting. (That is not easy)
From the year of planning Michelle was on top of every request. She always responded to any queries within a day or two of correspondence throughout the year.
The actual wedding day. From start to finish was magical. The staff were amazing. The venue was set up like something from a movie set. We had a live 2 man band for our ceremony and they were outstanding.
The ceremony was followed by cocktail hour and canapes, the food was demolished within 20 minutes we needed to order more. Not because we didn't order enough but because the food was so delicious.
The wedding meal set up was fabulous, we chose the drapes and fairy lights for that extra sparkle. A round of applause to the chef. Our wedding was multi cultural, from Irish, Scottish, Italian, Greek, Danish, Philippians to Australian's everyone said the food was fantastic.
For later in the evening we hired a pancake tuktuk for 9pm start. This was a great treat for the guests, and can I say the tuktuk offered more than we expected.
We also hired the DJ who covered every type of music he certainly got the party going and the dance floor was never empty. The fire show was sensational. Highly recommended.
I literally cannot praise the staff at Nora Beach enough. I organise many events myself here in Australia and I am extremely fussy (down to every single detail) and I cannot complain about 1 single thing.
Thank you again Michelle we could not have had this wonderful day and memory without you. You are fantastic at your job.
Lynda & Ben
We got married here and it was fantastic
I got married here and it was the best week of my life. The rooms were fantastic. Some guests had hill side and were very happy and we had pool side villa which was so nice. The staff were great and we spent happy hours at the beach side pool. We had a lovely honeymoon meal on the grass that was amazing (although they charged us to drink water and two further drinks, which I thought was extremely over the top after all the money we spent). The actual wedding was fantastic. The venue for the wedding and the meal/party was perfect and the food and drink was delicious (we had the thai buffet). We used Carla from the facebook page wedding hair and make-up Koh Samui. She was fantastic and from England and understood exactly what we all wanted. Photos were with Anne-Sophie Maestracci and we haven't seen them yet but she was great. And not forgetting rob the djwho was amazing! I would 100% recommend this resort to get married in or just go on holiday. You can run the beach to the main areas in 15 or walk or get a short taxi but it's location couldn't be better. The breakfasts are very good and have a mix of everything. The restaurant for dinners with a sea view were fantastic and all in all if I could do it all again I'd 100% go back there! Thank you to all the staff and I hope to see you all again.

A resort that pleased 50+ of my wedding guests!
Wow, what a resort! After months of research I decided that Nora would be the resort that I would book for me and my 70+ guests for our wedding. Always a nervous thing as you want everyone to enjoy their stay...Well they more than enjoyed it; they LOVED IT! The food was yummy and fresh, the rooms clean and smart and the staff were the nicest and most accommodating! We had families, couples and singles staying and all loved it.
We organised a BBQ dinner on the beach for 73 guests and it went so so smoothly...EVERYONE commented on the yummy food and the setting. Our event planner, Christine, did amazing and really pulled out all the stops...
If you are looking for somewhere that is peaceful, close to Chewang, has friendly staff and a brilliant pool and swim up bar; look no further! Could recommend it more...we will be going back!
Thanks for everything :D
Bethan & Daniel
Fantastic Venue and Service, slightly over priced
We took the massive leap of organising our wedding completely via email with Nora Beach Resort and Spa. There were a lot of emails back and forth and they requested a lot of information.
On our our arrival at the resort and after the initial meeting for the wedding, we had no doubt that Christine (Event Co-ordinator/Manager) had a lot of experience with Weddings. We walked into the meeting with a lot questions to clarify or request more information, we walked out with only asking 1.
The resort staff themselves were 100% polite, efficient and very eager to please. The staff provided verypersonalised service and and almost felt like family after 2 weeks with them.
Where this review loses a point is the promised room upgrade. We were advised 3 days before arrival that they could not provide us with the Beach front villa due to maintenance, and we were provided with a pool villa. After multiple discussions through Christine in the months prior, we were advised that we could be provided with an upgraded room that was promised as part of our package.
We were promised a single level upgrade to the beach front villa for at least 6 months before hand and the last minute change severely disappointed us. We are very confident that Christine was not at fault here, but we were refused a meeting with the General Manger to discuss the matter. We brought an extra 50 guests to the resort for our wedding, which would have resulted in significant capital into the property. This refusal was the reason for the loss of the 1 point.
That said, my partner are completely over the moon with how the wedding went, the way my family and friends were treated, the star who served and became our friends and the position of the resort.
We were provide an afternoon in the Spa and a private dinner as part of the wedding package. These were lovely additions to the wedding and something that we not have thought to have haveorganised. On a seperate note, Narz was our wedding photographer and the photos are brilliant.
I would have no hesitations in recommending the resort for anyone looking to have an event at the premise. These people (namely Christine), obviously have extensive experience with events and the day and night went very smoothly.

Perfect wedding, Fantastic hotel
We got married at the Nora Buri in February 2016 and can safely say it is one of the best decisions we ever made. Everything was perfect, and the level of organisation and service was second to none.
Getting married in another country, on an Island and at a venue you have never been to can be quite nerve-wracking. However, Nora Buri's wonderful wedding planner Michelle put us at ease right away. From our early exchange of emails to enquire about the hotel we knew that she was a safe pair of hands to plan our big day.
From the moment we landed in Koh Samui everything was perfect. We were treated like VIPs. Michelle was there to greet us as we arrived at the hotel and many of the staff seemed to know our names.
The wedding day itself was incredible. Everything ran so smoothly and was so well organised, Michelle and her team did an amazing job. We had a personal assistant before the ceremony while my bridesmaids and I were getting ready and nothing was too much to ask.
Our ceremony was supposed to be on the beach but it had rained quite heavily that morning (luckily it stopped just in time for our ceremony!) so we got married on the lawn just above the beach instead and we are actually really pleased we did. The flowers were beautiful, our celebrant Johnny was lovely and informal. The musicians who sang and played guitar were amazing.
After the ceremony we had a cocktail reception on the lawn and then held our reception in the barge restaurant over looking the ocean, it was beautiful. The food was amazing! We had the East meets West buffet and I don't think I have ever seen so much food! We are vegetarians as are quite a few of our guests and before the wedding we had asked to change some of the menu to add more vegetarian food - Michelle agreed to this straight away, no problem (that would never happen in England!)
All in all this is just a wonderful hotel and we would highly recommend, to anyone thing of getting married in Thailand, to consider the Nora Buri - we promise you will not regret it!
Even if you are not planning on visiting for a wedding, the Nora Buri is an all round lovely hotel to spend your holiday. The rooms are huge and the hotel grounds are beautiful. The hillside rooms have amazing views, and the private pools are huge! All our guests commented on how much they loved the hotel!
We are already planning on visiting for our wedding anniversary in a few years!
Hillside rooms have incredible views!
Zara & Kevin
simply a wonderfull dream! Very elegant hotel.the team provide a perfect holiday: very clean cured, special attention to each guest, security tip top, excellent food & a truth simpathic friendly smile. Unforgettable our lovely wedding ceremony planner!

For a FAIRY-TALE wedding… this is the place to go…
Absolutely SPECTACULAR!!!!! On April the 21st my fiancé and I got married at Nora Buri Resort and spa and the staff at this resort just go above and beyond anything a bride could ever ask for. When I dreamt of my fairy-tale wedding this is what I imagined. Every little detail was thought of and when my hairdresser did not make it to my wedding our wedding planner Christine was there to help through every step of the day. We spent our first 3 nights in the hillside room and this room just blew us away it was spacious and luxurious and more spectacular than anything we have stayed in before. Then the day before our wedding the day of and the day after we moved to a beachfront pool villa were we spent the last remaining days. This room exceeded our expectations. Our on view of the ocean and our own special space to come back to each afternoon to enjoy. Our wedding planner Christine thought of each and every detail. I was very flexible with most things and left most details up to our planner. Christine thought of everything! On the day she had set up another pool villa for my fiancé and his best man to get ready in. We had our own P.A.s who assisted us on the day. Then we had staff make their way down the aisle and they held up roses as I walked down the aisle walkway. There is not enough space here for me to write down absolutely every detail. But from the ceremony to the reception the food was amazing, the table decorations and the setup is much more than I could have ever expected and our wedding planner was constantly available to assist with anything we needed. We will never ever forget this very special day for the rest of our lives thanks to our wonderful wedding planner Christine, the general manager Mr Lloyd and the beautiful staff at Nora Buri. THANKYOU THANKYOU THANKYOU!!!!!
All rooms were amazing! We stayed in both hillside and beachfront

Perfect resort for wedding on March 25th
We stayed in total 3 nights at Nora Buri for our wedding, everything was PERFECT! From the service, to the room, to the infinity pool, to the wedding venue, to the restaurant, to the food, to the view! We have to give Christine our wedding planner, and other staff in Nora Buri, a big thank you, you all did an amazing job for our wedding! It was simple stunning and magical, we will never forget it!
For any couples looking to have their wedding in Koh Samui, Nora Buri is definitely the perfect place for it!
Christine was so helpful throughout the wedding planning process, always answered my emails promptly and tried her best to accommodate our different requests. We booked a Pool Villa Hillside, later we luckily got upgraded to Pool Villa Beachside, which I would highly recommend because the view from the private pool is just breathtaking! The room was definitely the best that we ever stayed in, across the world. On our wedding day, my husband got another villa with his groomsmen to prepare before the ceremony. The wedding venue was decorated incredibly beautiful, everything was just as how we dreamt and planned. The wedding reception was at Barge restaurant, which was perfect for a small-medium size wedding group, and it has amazing oceanview. Food - our family and friends are still talking about how great the food was at our wedding. We selected Thai & BBQ buffet, and all the food served there was perfect (both presentation and taste). Little sweet details that we didn't expect: at reception, each guest had their own lovely name-card on their assigned seat; there were nicely printed drink menu (with drinks we selected). Overall, the whole wedding was perfect, all our guests enjoyed it a lot - thanks to all the staff who helped, especially to Christine for her hard work and help!
For the hotel itself:
-Huge selection for food during breakfast, and it was all very tasty. -We tried the Thai restaurant with friends the night before our wedding, the food was very nice (though more expensive given the high service standard). -SPA & massage: the one we had at Nora Buri was definitely the best we ever had (we tried quite some spa places, even high-end one in Bangkok), the whole experience was just heaven-like.
One small issue we (and our guests who stayed at Nora Buri) had, was that it took quite some time to make reservation via email because the reservation team is quite slow to give any response. Hopefully that will be improved in the future. And somehow the internet couldn't really work for me from our second day staying there, however it worked fine for the other people.

Where do I start?
15 months ago, my now husband and I made the decision to get married at Nora Buri Resort & Spa, where we had stayed in April 2014. After our first visit in 2014, we couldn't fault it, we told everyone about the amazing experience we had had. I contacted the resort in January 2015 for information regarding weddings etc. The amazing Christine (wedding planner) got back to me with all the information I needed. We then set the date & the planning began! Christine helped me with everything and made the entire process very easy. I felt no stress or pressure at any time leading up to the wedding. When we arrived at the resort we were greeted by all the amazing staff. Management also made the effort to come and speak to us on several occasions. Nora Buristaff are simply amazing! They are so friendly & are so happy to help guests with anything they need. We had a group off 55 people including children attend our wedding and most guests stayed at the resort. Every single one of those guests were so impressed by the beauty of the resort, the amazing staff and ofcourse the amazing food! We also travelled to the resort with our two children. The resort was very accommodating and the staff paid them so much attention. The Day - 30.3.2016 On the day of the wedding, Christine organised a separate villa for my bridesmaids, flower girls and I to get ready in. We also had a PA who regularly visited to make sure everything and everyone was well. Most of the day flew by (as it does for the bride) and I can't wait to see the video to relive it. The ceremony was on the grass above the beach & it was decorated perfectly. Nora Buri look after every fine detail to the point where every flower laid on the ground looked like it was done one by one. Absolute precision! The band was amazing! We were honoured to have them play at our wedding! The staff were incredible and I can't explain highly enough about how beautiful they are. The reception was fantastic and Iv already been told by guests how much they enjoyed the entire experience. We had fireworks (which I highly recommend) & although we couldn't have lanterns for all of our guests as planned (due to the weather being a bit windy) the resort still organised for my husband and I to have our own lantern. We were very grateful! On the day of the wedding it really made me realise we had made the right decision and I wouldn't have done it any other way. Beautiful staff, beautiful resort, absolute perfection!

Our amazing wedding!
We have just come back from our fantastic wedding at Nora Buri. The wedding itself was planned by Christine and she did a brilliant job- she organised literally everything. Everything went to plan on the day, and no request was too much!! We even had a fancy dress booth (DIY) to set up, which we gave her team, no questions asked- it was set up at the reception without any questions!! Many of our guests commented on how good the food was (we did a BBQ seafood buffet). The venue itself was the Barge restaurant which really is perfect size for a small wedding (we had 28 people in total) and overlooks the beach. There is a larger restaurant for larger weddings. The ceremony was beautiful, on the lawn area by the beach, with lovely flowers set up along the isle. We opted for the option of bringing our own wine/ sparkling wine and just paid the corkage fee. Christine kindly found one of the beach pool villas for myself and bridesmaid to get ready during the day. The hotel itself is really lovely- huge bedrooms. Yes if you are up on the hill you will benefit from getting the buggys, however those rooms have amazing views. My husband’s parents asked to be moved lower down the hill which was no problem. Breakfast including is amazing!!
Room 764 has great views and you don't need a buggy
